    Is there a way on the Droid X (or any Android) to lookup a contact by their phone number?

    On the iPhone you can type the number in via the number pad and if it's in your contacts, the name is displayed.

    If you use the dialer to dial the number the contact info pops up as the call is being connected. I'm sure you have a good example but "I know your phone number but not your name" seems like an odd situation.

    Yes, it is rare but handy to have when I need it. In the past when I've used this is when someone in our family got a call from a number not in their contacts list. I would type the number into my phone's keypad and if I had it, the name would pop up (or vice versa if I got a call, they could search for it).

    I was just wondering if there was a way to get the same information without initiating a call to someone.

    I use the app Dialer One for this reason and many others.
